Have you seen a paed to get him diagnosed correctly?
You will find that paeds dont use off the shelf products for cows milk allergies they give you a script for either Elecare or Neocate which are lactose free formulas plus as the child medically requires them you get an authorised script which makes the formula cheaper than off the shelf.
sorry your not talking to me, but my DD, i suspect, is lactose sensitive. my reasoning is she has bad constipation from cows milk, or formula with lactose in it. i took it upon myself, after so many doctors told me nothing was wrong to place her on lactose free milk. i have not looked back. she is happier, and thriving, and actually gaining more weight, since being on it. i even took her to a paed, who ran some test, which came back clear. so he just told me i am doing the right thing, and continue it, as it works for us, but i did not receive a script for anything, except something to help her bowels move with normal cows milk.. sad since my poor girl has had the same problem since starting on formula at 6 weeks old.. and is now just shy of 17 months old..
not all babies with lactose problems can get a script, and as my daughter is 100% better on lactose free milk, i assume that Lactose was, and is the problem...
what i am getting at is her boy may not have a diagnosed issue.. it could be similar to my little girl, who was brushed off as having no problem. when no one helps, i was willing to try anything to get her better, and this just so happened to work
